A little unclear about SWYPO


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone.

Forgive me if this has been addressed somewhere before: I am a little unclear about the whole "SWYPO" rule. I totally understand not trying to re-create junk food, such as paleo pancakes, brownies, ice cream, etc.

Where the line gets blurry for me is in other dishes, such as quiches, meatballs, and the like. I'm sitting here eating a "crustless quiche" (recipe from Practical Paleo) and it's making me wonder - how is this not SWYPO? For me, a quiche isn't an item I'd normally crave/obsess over. Either are meatballs. So am I correct in thinking that if it's not an emotional attachment or issue, it's okay? (For me it's totally the sweet stuff.) I just enjoy cooking a variety of things and like to have some change day-to-day (unlike my husband, who could literally eat the same thing every day for years and never get bored... me no understand!!)

Thanks in advance for your replies. :)

The things that you mentioned you are cooking are fine. It's the stuff we have emotional attachments to, like creating a Whole30 Pizza, cookies, or treats with approved ingredients that's not allowed on W30. SWYPO does have some blurry lines, i agree, as it's a little different for everyone. What one person may not consider SWYPO is definitely SWYPO for another person due to individual food attachments. Sounds like you are doing fine.

My advice is to look at 3 factors:

1. Most important- is it covered in the guidelines? Certain things, no matter our attachment (or lack of), are just plain out.

2. Is it a food with no brakes for you? If it is, you may want to reconsider.

3. Will it fit appropriately in the meal planning template?

That usually answers my questions :)

Thank you both :) It sounds like I'm ok then. Definitely alright as far as guidelines, not a food with no brakes, and as far as I understand it's good in the meal template. That clears things up, especially for the future. Thanks again!
